In brief: Daily
Malarone (atovaquone and proguanil) should be taken daily starting two days before traveling to a malarious area, continued while you are there and for seven more days after you leave the malarious area.

In brief: Additional
Take with food or milky beverage.
While side effects are rare, the most common ones are abdominal pain and nausea. A bit of food in the stomach might help reduce this small risk. Avoid this malaria medicine if you have significant kidney disease, are pregnant, or breast feeding a baby under 11 pounds. Ok for kids too unless they also are under 11 pounds.
